You know, if Muse wants to play jazz, or death metal, or reggae, punk, funk, salsa, hip hop, country, or surf, as a side project under a different name, I think that would be great. But PLEASE don't put it on a fucking MUSE album! :eek:

 

Muse consider doing a whole bunch of shit when it comes to music but most of the time it doesn't make the cut.

No problem. :) Same here.

 

Naughty NME! They had a fairly big pic of Matt in the middle of the front cover and that's all they say inside! :noey: Glad I didn't buy it. :happy:

 

 

I know!! This is why we have this thread, because NME just wants attention and doesn't want to work for it. They just throw out little pieces of info and call it news. :noey:

New article on Muse new album out!

 

I've just seen a really low-res photo of the article... hopefully we'll get the scans soon.

 

Something about pushing electronica and orchestra to the max. I'll be happy as long as it sounds good, but it would be nice to have a few "simpler' rock songs...:rolleyes: you can really mosh around to orchestral electronical music, can you?

 

anyway, who knows how will it sound by October, god knows they change their mind all the time.

Found a better pic of the article, typed it up. Like everyone else said, nothing new. http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m0j2f50Pff1qbfneyo1_500.jpg

 

 

MAIN EVENT

Last week saw Muse lift the lid on the recording sessions for their sixth album — and reveal some hugely pertinent details about their progress. It’ll be out in autumn, they said. It’ll feature brass and strings. And it’ll include the contributions of legendary composer David Campbell.

 

Tweeting pictures fromt heir sessions at EastWest Studios in LA, where they also recorded tracks for 2003’s ‘Absolution”, the band told fans the album was coming along nicely. Being on the “autumn”, confirming rumours that they were aiming for an October release. They also posted images of them posing with choir and orchestra sections, which they described as “some legendary players”, as well as a shot of Matt Bellamy looking over his string section with arranger, composer and conductor Campbell, who has worked with Adele, Radiohead, Paul McCartney and Beyoncé.

 

Already a fascinating picture of the album — a key point in the band’s career after the lukewarm reception to 2009’s ‘The Resistance’ — is emerging. Here’s what we know so far:

 

THEY’RE GOING IN A NEW DIRECTION

“We feel like we are drawing a line under a certain period in our career,” Chris Wolstenholme said recently. “It feels like it’s time to do something radically different.” And besides the use of brass, they’re also heading in an electronic direction. Chris told NME that “Matt was talking about messing around with grooves and loops”, while Matt has spoken about being influenced by Justice and, er, Does It Offend You, Yeah?, claiming he wanted an electronic sound. Over the course of ‘Black Holes…’ and ‘The Resistance’, electronics and grand orchestrations have become key to Muse’s development; expect them to push these to their extremes this time.

 

THERE WILL BE BRASS

Though Muse recorded with a full orchestra on ‘The Resistance’ and ‘Absolution’, this is the first time they’ve hired a dedicated brass section besides the lone trumpeter Franco who purps(??) away on the intro to ‘Knights Of Cydonia’. It points towards a more striden big band sound than the orchestral frivolities of ‘Exogenesis Symphony’, or elements of the jazzy album they toyed with making while recordin ‘Black Holes…’ in the isolation of Miraval Studios, France. Typically for Muse, though, they’ve historically thrived on juxtaposition and dynamics within their albums, not just one sound.

 

THERE’LL BE A TUNE FOR BEDTIME

“I’ll definitely get a lullaby on there,” Matt said when asked if being a dad would have an influence on the new album. This is in keeping with his early assertion that the album would be “more personal, rather than about political conerns. That may lead to material that’s more suitable for smaller venues.” Indeed, ‘The Resistance’ could be seen to have completed a trilogy of Muse albums concerned with wide political theories: ‘Absolution’ — a fearful awakening to global issues post-9'11, ‘Black Holes…’ — a more assured dissection of the politics of control, and ‘The Resistance’ — a call to fight back. Understandably, now a father, Matt will be looking to more human aspects.

 

IT WILL BE MORE UPBEAT…

We shouldn’t expect Muse’s sixth album to be full of tracks moping over Matt’s break-up with his ex-girlfriend Gaia — not only has he already hooked up and had a baby with Hollywood actress Kate Hudson, but he got it out of his system on the one-off song ‘Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)’ on the Eclipse soundtrack. “By the time we get to the next album my life might have moved on,” he said, and he’s right.

 

…WHILE ALSO BEING MORE CHILLED

Muse have traditionally opted to cut themselves off from distractions for weeks on end in order to write and record, sometimes going as far as to have no method of communicating with the outside world at all. For this sixth album they’ve remained within reach of society and leisurely pieced it together over five months, so far. “It would be nice to be based in the same place and also socialise at the same time,” Matt has commented. “It also means we can make the album over a longer period without having to pressurise it all into a three-week studio session.”

 

So we are to expect “a personal album” which would be “radically different’. Frankly, we can’t wait to hear what they come up with in October.

I learnt more about David Campbell tbh. :chuckle:

 

Knowing Muse change their minds a lot we can probably expect it to sound nothing like what NME say they're expecting at the bottom of the article.

Thanks! I was hoping for some original journalism and a studio visit, shame it's just regurgitated stuff.

Yeah, some of the stuff in there was from months ago. I'm sure it'll sound much different.
